Nollywood actress, Ini Edo has spilled details about her failed marriage to her ex-husband, Philip Ehiagwina.
During an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on the Rubbing Minds show, Ini Edo cleared the air about the reason her marriage to Philip Ehiagwina crashed.
Ini Edo disclosed that one of the factors that made her marriage fail was distance as it did not give them the opportunity to understand each other.
“No matter the indifference or incompatibility, if you’re together in love, a lot of things can actually work out”, she said.
“However, you don’t get to work things out when there is no contact. When you are with someone, and you can’t agree on certain things or find a common ground, I think being together could have actually helped us to understand each other better.
Most of the time, we attract the wrong people, sometimes for the wrong reasons. Because when people come to you because of what they see on TV, it’s hard for them to accept you considering the fact that you are just acting because that is your job.
When they find out that it’s not the real you, it becomes a problem. Marriage is an experience that I don’t regret. My ex-husband met me as an actress. My job takes my time because naturally there are certain roles you are not allowed to play once you are married.
Even if your husband understands, his relatives might not understand. My ex-husband is the last child, so family interference in the marriage was normal.
Marriage has taught me a lot of lessons, it made me wiser and stronger. I think it actually made me more mature. I don’t think I married too early, maybe I was a little bit in a hurry.”
Ini Edo and Philip Ehiagwina got married in 2008 and separated six years after in 2014. The actress recently welcomed a baby girl through surrogacy.
